About this book

The first book to systematically apply metapopulation theory directly to marine systems. Technological improvements have greatly increased the ability of marine scientists to collect and analyze data over large spatial scales, and the resultant insights attainable from interpreting those data vastly increase understanding of population dynamics, evolution and biogeography. Marine Metapopulations provides a synthesis of existing information and understanding, and frames the most important future directions and issues.

This is the right book at the right time; for those not familiar with marine metapopulations, it is an excellent introduction. it will also serve as a valuable reference for those actively engaged in this research...Highly recommended. Upper-level undergraduates and above. - G.C. Jensen in CHOICE
